   0   0 Blog, Taxing corporations

Global Tax FairnessThis new book from Oxford University Press, edited by Thomas Pogge and Krishen Mehta, publishes fifteen chapters by leading tax justice scholars on different topics ranging from country-by-country reporting to unitary taxation, from automatic information exchange to tax wars, with clear and practicable policy recommendations for how to move forward on a tax justice agenda.   As OUP say on the book’s rear cover:

“This book addresses fifteen different reform proposals that are urgently needed to correct the fault lines in the international tax systems as it exists today, and which deprive both developing and developed countries of critical tax resources. It offers clear and concrete ideas on how the reforms can be achieved and why they are important for a more just and equitable global system to prevail.”
